The Resident Youth hit Dance Company will host auditions June 18th Monday, 6 to 8 p.m., at the Marcia P. Hoffman Performing Arts Institute at Ruth Eckerd Hall, 1111 McMullen Booth Road.
Hit dancers, ages 12 to 18, interested in performance opportunities are invited to audition for the Rhythm and Sole hit Ensemble 2012-13.
Dancers must be ready to perform a minimum 30-second a cappella tap routine. Hit dancers must exhibit strong technique, musicality and stage presence. Hit dancers also will learn choreography during the audition process.
Hit Troupe's mission is to expand and promote the art form of tap dance. Past performances have included the ABC News Super bowl Tailgate Party, Walt Disney World, The Side by Side by Side Concert at Ruth Eckerd Hall, the opening act for Maroon 5 at Ruth Eckerd Hall and the hit City Showcase at the Symphony Space Theater on Broadway.
The Hoffman Institute's own neighborhood hit ensemble meets twice a week to study and rehearse for performance opportunities. The youth hit repertoire includes cutting-edge choreography in everything from classical jazz to musical theater, rhythm and funk.
